Perhaps you should talk to them again. Steve Feldman (MFS) has said multiple times that FFDT is enabled on the MFS Gigaswitches. At the last NANOG, he suggested people try out the 'new' feature implemented by Cisco and send him feedback. As Stephen Stuart (PAIX) pointed out you have to disable the feature as it's enabled by default. Perhaps a better theory on the reason certain providers are de-emphasizing their MAE/NAP connections is that they're concerned about people "stealing" bandwidth on their links via 3rd party routing. -jh- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
